I am going to keep this one short and sweet. Their menu is to die for! Their food is hearty, delicious, filling, and affordable. Their staff, however, is just consistently rude. The latter ruins it but the food is amazing and I recommend it!!

I agree, call ahead. Not really appropriate for a children's birthday party, however depending on how many kids will be attending? Definitely a great place to celebrate with family. Waitresses are super friendly!
